First look: SlideShare's new live video presentations, ZipCast

SlideShare is an innovative service that lets you embed your PowerPoint slides into its web service.

Today they are launching “ZipCasts” which let you make a public presentation. It is a simple meeting service. You click on “ZipCast” in Slideshare and you can share presentations in real time.

Neat thing? No download needed. It’s free, but there is a paid version to give you more features and to get rid of ads. Works completely in browser.

Very easy to do, but one thing I wish is that it let you record these video presentations (it can’t do that yet). Anyway, neat new feature. In my video I shot the other day the exec team talks about this and the technology behind it.

  1. I’ve used Slideshare before, and Zipcast is a great addition. Obviously, we are in the midst of seeing huge growth in the online conferencing industry and I’m happy to see that the current trend set by companies like SlideShare and Mingleverse is to integrate social sharing of meeting spaces.
